John Muir (1902), "Everybody needs beauty... places to play and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body (mind) and soul (spirit) alike." Muir also wrote, "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings."
At 10:10AM I decided to go for a walk and left a note for Laura. "Walked to park. Back soon. If not, I am hopelessly lost." Took camera and got beautiful pictures of strange birds and unknown trees. I walked as Thoreau would walk. I was slow, deliberate, thoughtful, observant. I even walked backwards at times, to see something in a new way. In my opinion I was a "sauntieure". Cesare Pavese, "We do not remember days, we remember moments."
A note to John Muir: "Dear John, they say you did not think well of the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. That, old friend, is a grievous flaw upon your otherwise sterling character. However, I do not count you among the fools. Sir, I will be generous and allow you this single fault for every great wo/man must have one. Sincerely, Anne."
